Customer Success Stories
2N® Helios IP Vario Increases Security in the Administration Building
NHS Foundation Trust needed a door entry solution that would integrate with the IP phones, be supported by Cisco Call Manager and use the existing infrastructure. Installing the 2N® Helios IP Vario intercom with expansion unit gave them a centralised communication system, which enabled every department to have at least one button at the intercom. This means visitors can now use the 2N solution to gain access into the building, ask for the particular person and speak directly to them.

"From an IT and administration view, the 2N solution gave us a centralised communication system that made use of the existing infrastructure. The expansion unit has given us a great deal of flexibility, enabling every department to have at least one button. Additionally we were able to integrate it with our speech recognition enabled telephony solution, which means visitors can use the 2N solution to ask for anyone in the building and subsequently speak directly to them. In a building accommodating over 500 people, this has given us increased flexibility and security."

Customer Success Stories
2N® Helios IP Vario Enhances Security at UniCredit
The headquarters of UniCredit Bank Czech Republic and Slovakia a.s. are housed in the 16-storey Filadelfie building in Prague. The building has no central reception and there are numerous departments of different companies on each floor. To ensure problem-free movement of people around the building, both for employees and visitors to UniCredit Bank, it was necessary to provide access to each floor and department using the existing infrastructure. They opted for 2N intercoms, which not only meet the strictest UniCredit Bank security standards, but were also easily connected up to IP telephony from Cisco.

"We were looking for an IP intercom that could be connected to a Cisco IP branch exchange and which also met the very strict security standards of UniCredit Bank. The solution had to be easy to install and could not be a burden for the IT department. Thanks to a recommendation from the project designers, we selected 2N IP intercoms."
